2019 JPA Inter Parish Petanque League report – Week 21
The final matches in the 2019 league will decide if St Saviour can retain the trophy or if St Helier, runners up last year, can go one better this year.
St John’s 6-0 victory over Grouville, takes them above St Lawrence to third place, but it will be either St Helier or St Saviour who are champions this year. Both are on 44 points, but St Helier have the superior games difference.
There were no close results this week; it was all or nothing it seems!
Both Grouville and St Lawrence were unable to win any games, St John and St Ouen both being on top form! John Mahoney almost saved Grouville but lost out to Alain Aoutin by one point in the end.
St Peter very nearly achieved a whitewash too, Gil and Gaile le Roch losing to Kay Laverty and Brian Harris also 13-12. St Mary were unfortunate to have to play one short, but Mike Fennell and Alan Rimeur did win one game for them at St Helier.
Neither of the top two teams has an easy last match; St Saviour are on home ground against third placed St John who are on a high after this week’s victory. Meanwhile, St Helier are away to St Brelade, who are also in good form as the season comes to its climax.
